Lichtundfire is pleased to announce and welcomes all to the Opening Reception of RIVERS OF BABYLON, a Solo Exhibition of Works on Paper by Panamanian artist RODNEY ZELENKA, jointly curated by curator Elga Wimmer and Lichtundfire’s gallery director Priska Juschka.
This exhibition, with works in various media, emphasizes and comments visually on the universal and age-old human reality of GLOBAL MIGRATION. Deeply inspired by his own family history, and by his parents, separately immigrating from Germany and Austria to Panama in the 1930’s — Zelenka’s primary setting for his visual language is the context of South and Central American Migration.Download Press Release
